Code of Conduct

Every day at LPL, in every business unit and in every role, there are choices to make, challenges to overcome, and ideas to take to the next level. Through our Code of Conduct, we guide financial professionals and employees to do business ethically.

Our Code of Conduct ensures that we:

  • Provide information that is accurate, complete, relevant, timely, and understandable. This helps ensure accurate, timely, and understandable disclosure in reports, documents, and public communications.
  • Comply with the rules and regulations of federal, state, provincial, and local governments and other private and public regulatory agencies.
  • Act in good faith, responsibly, with due care, competence, and diligence, and without misrepresenting material facts or allowing one’s independent judgment to be subordinated.
  • Respect the confidentiality of information and never use this information for personal advantage.
  • Share knowledge and maintain skills important and relevant to shareholders’ needs.
  • Proactively promote and demonstrate ethical behavior as a responsible partner among peers, in the work environment, and in the community.
  • Achieve responsible use of and control over all assets and resources employed or entrusted.

The LPL Code of Conduct also helps us embrace and practice our corporate values—which ultimately guide us in achieving our mission.
